    Much of what we think is freedom and security is only an illusion. When push comes to shove, you will see like they did in Boston.

    I would very much like to see a lawsuit brought against the police agency that was responsible for it -- this after watching a couple of videos of cops pounding on doors while pushing, pulling, and demanding home dwellers put their hands over their heads and march out of their homes and down the street. While it is possible the police defense would be "we were in active pursuit" of the bombers -- going door to door in multiple block areas and doing the above stretches any semblance of rational "active pursuit" theory. But that's my opinion.

    Further: Once citizens start believing that "going after bad guys" gives total license to police agencies to violate Constitutional search standards -- as a society we have given up on freedom.

    Maybe it's time for citizens to push back.

    Yes, but apparently we need yet another.

    While we are at it, I would like to add that the police should have been armed with .45's, because that is THE BEST round for stopping a bad guy. Anything smaller is a mouse gun, IMO.

    Let's weave in some velocity v. weight arguments, too.

    Also, you should always tell law enforcement you are armed, even if not legally required to do so.
    I have a very strict gun control policy: if there's a gun around, I want to be in control of it.

    If you want to read something really scary, Google the gun confiscation that occurred after Hurricane Katrina. There is plenty out there that is NOT Infowars based.

    If you still think this was just a random act there is no hope for you.
    They knew about the older brother and mother they had them on a watch list, they had been warned about them . They can not hide it any more it is out.
    Not wanting any problems this administration did ,their nothing to see here routine again and are getting away with it.
    They did not act alone, they are a part of the worlds largest terror group Muslim and you can stick your head in the sand all day and that will not change it.
    So sit back ignore what happened worry about some LEO searching and house point fingers every where, but do not hold Obama accountable, just another day.

    I don't think anyone is saying this should be ignored at an investigatory level. It's just that on the forum we've beaten the dead horse beyond even the most squished form of road kill, and all that we have to say has pretty much been said.
